The LYMA Laser System heralds a new dawn for at home scar treatment. Offering the first at home cosmetic device, proven to transform all scars on all skin types and tones, eliminating scars effectively and safely, pain free. The LYMA Device is set to be a game changer for at home scar removal.
Over 20 million people in the UK are negatively impacted - either physically or emotionally - by scarring that only serves to be a constant reminder of pain, illness or trauma. There is still a profound lack of public awareness around the physical and emotional toll body and face scars can take on a person, and a severe dearth of effective at home treatments to help those who wish to minimise their scarring.
Until now it’s been impossible to completely remove scars at home. Particularly using a device that’s suitable for darker skin tones as well as lighter ones. Whilst laser light has long been the gold standard in scar removal for those with caucasian colouring, it is only with the LYMA Laser that at home laser treatment can be guaranteed no matter your skin tone. Jenny's tells her story on how she reduced the appearance of her surgical scar thanks to The LYMA Laser.
The LYMA technology is a world first and arguably the most effective scar removal solution in a generation. Nothing with this level of transformative power has ever been available to use at home. Portable, powerful, painless; the LYMA Laser provides clinic-grade performance in the palm of your hand. LYMA changes everything.
You’re likely familiar with what a scar looks like, but what exactly is it? And why does the body respond to injury in this way?
Scarring, as you’re probably aware, is the body’s natural method of repair in response to trauma or injury. The process of scar development can be broken down into three parts:
Inflammation: this lasts a few days and initiates the repair process to commence
Proliferation: this is the accumulation of the cells that makes the scar and continues for about 28 days
Remodeling: the biological process of changing the scar from a raised, red scar into a soft, flat scar, which can last for several months or even years
It is a little acknowledged fact that as you age, scarring can become even more pronounced. Once you move into your twenties and beyond, your skin starts to decline in function, producing less collagen and elastin, and causing the fibroblasts (our skin cells’ primary energy source) to start to work more slowly. This is a result of poor immune response, a reduced supply of nutrients to the skin, as well as impaired circulation and insufficient oxygen to the skin’s surface; all of which are essential for cellular energy production.
Fully optimised fibroblasts are essential for a successful proliferation stage of wound healing - without fully functional cells, the skin struggles to form the scar tissue in the first place and wound healing can become protracted.
The LYMA system works by delivering photobiomodulation: a concentrated laser beam that diffuses a tiny pinprick of light over a large surface area of skin, stimulating and enhancing cell function.
LYMA offers the only at home protocol which has a beneficial effect on all three stages of scarring by working directly on the cells to alter the growth factors and, in turn, change the scar’s ‘recipe’. When the scar’s ‘recipe’ is changed during the inflammation or proliferation stage of scar development, the product of the scar changes too, resulting in a flatter, smoother and less visible scar. The LYMA groundbreaking skin renewal device, when used for just 3 minutes over each section of the skin scar, daily for two months, helps to accelerate the remodeling process in all layers of the skin by increasing supply of nutrients, improving circulation and speeding up the repair process.
In addition to the Laser, there are two additional steps to achieving results with The LYMA Protocol, both of which contribute to LYMA’s market-leading position: the LYMA Priming Serum and LYMA Active Mist.
The LYMA Priming Serum triggers an immune response via our Wellmune® Blend's beta glucans, which signals to the fibroblasts that they need to turn their energy and attention to repairing the skin, gradually reducing the amount of scar tissue and replacing it with regenerated elastic fibers. The LYMA Active Mist increases oxygen supply in the skin tissue through Active Stabilised Oxygen which boosts the energy supply.
The LYMA System penetrates beyond even the deepest layers of the skin, to the fat and muscle tissue beneath; renewing the muscles, replacing tired muscle fibers and evening out pigmentation to reignite and reveal the skin’s natural hue.
The LYMA System doesn’t just help to treat scars. When used at home for twenty minutes daily, clinical trials have shown a reduction in pigmentation by 64%, skin redness by 42%, blemishes by 56% and wrinkle depth by 53.8% in just five weeks. But that is only part of the story. Over time, the bio-stimulation restores cell function and eventually reverses the natural course of biological skin ageing and the cumulative effects of inflammaging on complexion.
The LYMA Laser System not only promotes cellular regeneration - increasing blood-flow, oxygen delivery and cellular growth and repair - it also targets more skin conditions than any other at-home device. With no side effects, discomfort or pain, The LYMA System represents the absolute pinnacle of at home laser technology. Nothing else even comes close.
